The Resident Evil trailer is out. Netflix has released two trailers for its live-action Resident Evil series to whet the curiosity of fans. The first began this year when sisters Jade and Billie Wesker moved to the corporate town of New Raccoon City to be with their father, Albert Wesker, a scientist involved in some shady experiments. The action then moves to London in 2036, where Wesker’s daughters try to survive a zombie apocalypse.
The second Resident Evil trailer introduces us to the multinational conglomerate Umbrella Corporation as it works on Joy, “an antidepressant that treats OCD, reduces anxiety, and increases concentration.” The only problem is that it contains the Tyrant Virus, also known as the T-Virus, which essentially creates the monsters seen in many Resident Evil games. We then see terrifying creatures – from zombies to giant spiders – wreaking havoc as humanity fights for survival.
The trailer ends with the creepy line, “So, we know what’s on the warning label,” which underscores Umbrella’s nefarious motives.

While both Resident Evil trailers are gory and disturbing, they don’t really mention the franchise as we know it. That’s not surprising, however, since Andrew Dabb, the producer of the live-action Netflix series, never wanted it to be a “decisive” version of the Resident Evil brand. Referring to the Resident Evil story, he said the Netflix series will feature a new plot, similar to those from the 2021 film adaptation of Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City and the Netflix animated miniseries Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness It doesn’t matter.
Dabb told IGN: “I don’t believe a final adaptation of Resident Evil exists. I also don’t think our show is definitive. Resident Evil is too big to be defined by one thing.”
The cast of Resident Evil includes Seina Agudong as Billie, Tamara Smart as Jade and Lance Reddick as Wesker.
Resident Evil will be available on Netflix on July 14, and all episodes will be available on release day.
